Jay and I are very thankful that we both live close to work. We each have a 10-15 minute commute. It used to take me a half hour to get to my old job. It was surprising how much of a difference that little extra time makes in my day.
C and S go to the daycare where I work three days a week. It is a large expense, but it is so nice to be able to walk down and visit them during my lunch hour. It has also helped me to get to know their teachers and their friends really well.
